Solving the housing crisis in the East of England

The Abbey

Working with you so far

Since 2019, we’ve been talking and listening to you to find out what matters to you – what you like, what could be better, and what ideas you have for your community. Throughout 2021 we carried out consultation with you and more than 2000 surveys were completed. Thank you to everyone who gave their views.

With your feedback, we’re now developing a plan for the Abbey - a once in a lifetime opportunity to bring long-lasting improvements for today’s and tomorrow’s residents.

What's happening now

Our conversations with you are continuing. We’re going to keep listening and speaking to you in the weeks, months, and years to come. Whatever we do will be shaped with you. And, over the coming months, we still want to hear your views on:

  • Open space, for play, for relaxation, for everyone to enjoy;
  • Streets, and how to get around the Abbey;
  • Homes, and what you’d like to see in new homes;
  • Your neighbourhood heart, and what you’d like to see in the centre of your community.

We’re going to be in your neighbourhood centre from 10am – 2pm every Thursday. We’ll be here to listen to you, find out your thoughts, and answer your questions. We’re also going to be writing you to let you know of any special events we’ll be holding to get your views.
